Om Rewriting and Reception in and of the Bible
“Rewriting and Reception in and of the Bible” indeholder 18 bidrag der tager nogle af Müllers videnskabelige hovedinteresser op, som bredt kan beskrives som bibelteksters virkningshistorie og ”Rewritten Bible”. Reception ses her som en del af en kontinuerlig proces, der begyndte i selve den bibelske litteratur og har fortsat gennem fortolkningshistorien.

Total Depravity: She Drugged Kids So She Could Tan

A woman who abandoned children at her Oregon daycare to go tanning has been sentenced to 21 years, four months in prison.

The Bulletin reports 32-year-old January Neatherlin was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty in February to 11 counts of first-degree criminal mistreatment and a count of third-degree assault. Neatherlin was arrested last year after police found seven children younger than 5 left unattended at her illegal day care center. Authorities said she forced the children to take medicine to induce sleep before heading to the tanning salon or to the gym.

The other counts of criminal mistreatment are for previous incidents with children. In court Neatherlin apologized, telling families that she had failed them and let them down. Neatherlin has prior felony identity-theft convictions under the names January Livsey and January Brooks.

Apologies in such cases are meaningless.  She isn’t sorry.  She’s sorry she got caught.

By and Large this is What America Has Become

As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one; There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God.  They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one.”  “Their throat is an open tomb; With their tongues they have practiced deceit”; “The poison of asps is under their lips”;  “Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.”  “Their feet are swift to shed blood; Destruction and misery are in their ways; And the way of peace they have not known.”  “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” (Rom. 3:10-18)

Zwingli’s Translation of Jeremiah

On March 11th, Zwingli issued his translation of Jeremiah with annotations, and dedicated it to the city of Strassburg, in further recognition of its entering into the Christian Burgher Rights. – S. Jackson

The full title is Complanationis Ieremiae Prophetae Foetura prima, cum Apologia quur quidque sic uersum sit per Huldrichum Zuinglium.

It remains one of the finest commentaries on Jeremiah ever written.
